Brian P. Pollack, MD, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Departments of Dermatology and Pathology at Emory University School of Medicine. Board certified in dermatopathology, Dr. Pollack specializes in laboratory medicine for melanoma and skin cancers at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
Dr. Pollack received a PhD from University of Medicine and Dentistry-Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and a MD from University of Medicine and Dentistry-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, both in Piscataway, NJ. He completed an Internship in Medicine at Columbia University's Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, NY. He completed his post doctoral training at Emory University School of Medicine.
Dr. Pollack's laboratory is interested in understanding how oncogenic signal transduction impacts the expression of immune system genes. Specifically, the interest lies in how activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor impacts the expression of MHC class I and class II molecules. Further, the lab is also interested in defining in vivo how inhibitors of oncogenic kinases influence T cell mediated immune responses.
